Mauritius: Flacq

19 photo with description
Next city on Mauritius which we have visited, was Flacq or Central Flacq or Santr de Flacq). Small town (well, likely average to local measures), basically built up with country houses on perimetre and two-storeyed shanties in the centre. At me was a pair of clocks on fluent survey. So, a few photo.

Country house of Chineses
Overwhelming majority of country houses — Hindu, hardly is less — shanties of Blacks, it is even less — Muslim dwellings. And here country houses of Chineses on Mauritius meting very seldom.

 Old fountain

Little shop
Little shop with an uncharacteristic roof for Mauritius. Such is faster at us, in Russia, continually.

Advertising of Hindu tatu-salon
In Port Louis saw the rolled young Hindu with a headdress of one of Hindu gods on a shoulder (was ashamed to photograph).

At the wheel overwhelming majority of buses on Mauritius Hindus. And buses necessarily with everyones decoreated and on a cabin of the driver and even sometimes on salon — carpets, a tinsel, flowers etc.

All! It is a pity nearly has reached interesting Catholic church Saint Ursule (then I did not know about its existence). Small town not at coast, to it Flacq there are no tourist. Here unless in respect of shopping it is possible to call in or casually in transit.
